Ep. 60- Do You Know How to Give Tough Love… 

Without Hurting Your Dancers?

In this episode, I talk about the need for a little tough love in coaching. I’m not telling you to be mean and rude, but there is a time and place when it is our job to challenge our dancers. It’s a common misconception that positive coaching means going easy on them, but that’s not true.  This episode explains how to give your dancers some tough love when they need it, because I know sometimes it’s hard to be hard on them. But there is a time and place, and process, for doing just that. And your dancers will be stronger for it.

Here are some highlights:

  • [2m 40s] My hardest tough love conversation
  • [4m 14s] When you have to communicate something that’s hard to hear
  • [6m 25s] 4 Steps to giving some tough love
  • [8m 00s] Tough love example
  • [9m 00s] Know your dancers and your personal coaching style
